  • Trump Picks Ryan Zinke to Head the DOI?

    Yep, Trump Picked Ryan Zinke to Head the DOI

    ZINKI’S  IDEA OF HIS DUTY AS THE DEPARTMENT OF INTERIOR AS  SECRETARY IS TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE A BROAD CONSENSUS ON WHAT WE’RE DOING

    ZINKE IS A RELATIVE POLITICAL NEWCOMER IN WASHINGTON AND TO POLITICS GENERALLY. DURING HIS SHORT TENURE AS A STATE LAWMAKER IN MONTANA, HE DEVELOPED A REPUTATION AS A “MODERATE” ON SOME ISSUES.

    ODDLY ENOUGH, AS A POLITICAL NEWCOMER, ZINKE HAS AN EXTENSIVE VOCABULARY OF THE LIBERAL POLITICO ESTABLISHMENTS KEY BUZZ WORDS.

    ZINKI’S TOP PRIORITIES WOULD BE TO GIVE LOCAL LAND MANAGERS AND RANGERS MORE FLEXIBILITY IN LAND MANAGEMENT DECISIONS

    REALLY, START COOLING OFF TENSION OVER LAND USE

    AFTER ABOUT FOUR HOURS OF QUESTIONING  AND COMMENTS  DURING . REP. RYAN ZINKE CONFIRMATION HEARING BEFORE THE SENATE ENERGY AND NATURAL RESOURCES COMMITTEE TUESDAY

    IT’S ALREADY CLEAR THERE COULD BE SOME FRICTION BETWEEN AN INTERIOR SECRETARY ZINKE AND SOME REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO SPENDING.

    AND REALLY, ZINKE  PROMISES TO BRING A TEDDY ROOSEVELT-STYLE APPROACH TO MANAGING FEDERAL PUBLIC LANDS?

    ZINKE  WENT ON TO SAY THAT HE THOUGHT THE COUNTRY HAS BENEFITED GREATLY FROM A LOT OF NATIONAL MONUMENT DESIGNATIONS, INCLUDING IN HIS HOME STATE OF MONTANA.

    ZINKE HINTED AT THE HEARING THAT ONE PRIORITY IN AN EXPECTED TRUMP-BACKED INFRASTRUCTURE BILL WILL BE TO ADDRESS A $12 BILLION BACKLOG IN MAINTENANCE AT NATIONAL PARKS.

    ZINKE HINTED? THAT  $12,000,000,000.00 BILLION DOLLAR NATIONAL PARK SERVICE (NPS) BACKLOG FOR MAINTENANCE WOULD BE  A PRIORITY FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP?

    PRESIDENT TRUMP WOULD HAVE A RED FLAG PRIORITY ON ANYTHING WITH  $12,000,000,000.00 BILLION DOLLAR AMOUNT ATTACHED TO IT.

    $12,000,000,000.00 BILLION DOLLARS IS THE LOW ESTIMATE FOR BUILDING THE WALL.

    MY CONSIDERED OPINION IS THAT RYAN ZINKE WOULD SUCK AS THE SECRETARY OF THE DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR.

    WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, NOT ONLY  DO I  QUESTION, I STRENOUSLY OBJECT TO PRESIDENT TRUMP’S PICK REP. RYAN ZINKE, R-MONT TO HEAD THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF INTERIOR (DOI)

    This is the hierarchy of power that  President Trump would be giving to Rep. Ryan Zinke, R-Mont. by appointment.

    LOL  RYAN ZINKE,  SAYS “WE ALL LOVE OUR PUBLIC LANDS, AND THE DUTY OF THE DEPARTMENT OF INTERIOR AS A SECRETARY IS TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE A BROAD CONSENSUS ON WHAT WE’RE DOING..

    Indeed, I would be speechless, if I did not have this website

    JUST SAYING. JUST ASKING? WHO IS THIS GUY?

     I’VE NEVER HEARD OF RYAN ZINKE. PERIOD WHO VETTED HIM?

    THE DEPARTMENT OF INTERIOR (DOI) IS A MESS, AND ITS AGENCIES ARE A MESS, LIKE THE NATIONAL PARK SERVICE (NPS) AND THE BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT (BLM) IS A BLOODY MESS,  THE DOI HAS MORE THAN CONTROL OF PUBLIC LAND, WITH A COMBINED CONTROL OF HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF ACRES OF PUBLIC LANDS, MOSTLY IN THE WEST.

    AS PRESIDENT TRUMP WOULD SAY “WHAT A MESS”.

    THE DEPARTMENT OF INTERIOR (DOI) IS A MESS

    During the Obama administration, fights over control of federal land boiled over into armed standoffs led by rancher Cliven Bundy and his sons in Nevada and Oregon.

    And, During the Obama administration, fights over control of federal land boiled over again on January 2, 2016, armed militants seized the headquarters of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Harney County Oregon

    On January 26, 2016 Robert “LaVoy” Finicum,  was shot three times in the back by two OSP officers.

    ——————————————————————————————–

    IT’S ALREADY CLEAR THERE COULD BE SOME FRICTION BETWEEN AN INTERIOR SECRETARY ZINKE AND some Republicans in Congress especially when it comes to spending.

    Certainly, President Trump is aware of the abuse of power by Obama’s  appointed interior secretary of Department of the Interior (DOI)

    The abuse of power by the DOI has been historically documented, and was crystal clear to America’s taxpaying citizens and voters long before  Trump formally announced his candidacy on June 16, 2015.

    In May 2014, in Texas, militias and their allies came to protest a BLM survey of more than 90,000 acres along the Red River, fearing the federal government was planning a land grab.”

    ‘If things don’t change, it’s not long before shots will be fired,’ Lyman said, joining other conservative lawmakers such as Chaffetz in warning of violence if the federal government didn’t rein in the BLM.

    ‘We can avoid it. But it’s not going to be by the people changing their attitudes and accepting more intrusion into their lives. IT’S GOING TO BE BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ACKNOWLEDGING PEOPLE’S FREEDOM.’‘It is impossible to overstate the importance of the victory won in the desert today, “The feds were routed—routed. There is no word that applies. Courage is contagious, defiance is contagious, victory is contagious. Yet the war is not over.’”

    How can a Federal Government of ours pay money for things like this when our government is many trillions of dollars in debt?

    This conspiracy will never end unless you people, property owners and tax payers start fighting back to stop the conspiracy and the taking of all our property on the Olympic Peninsula.

     The Olympic National Park has doubled in size to over one million acres or more.

     Most people have no knowledge of these vast encroachments to take our property and property rights on the Olympic Peninsula, and it is time that the truth be known. Land and Power Grab

     The National Park Service has no respect for private property ownership and rights.

     Attempts are being made to grab land corridors on each side of the major rivers on the Olympic Peninsula. If they succeed here attempts will be made to grab land corridors on smaller streams on the Olympic Peninsula.

    THE WILD OLYMPICS PLAN, WILDERNESS, WILD AND SCENIC RIVERS IS MORE THAN A SCAM

    UNDER THE WILDERNESS ACT OF 1964,

    THE WILD OLYMPICS PLAN, WILDERNESS, WILD AND SCENIC RIVERS, is not a giving of access of public land to THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

    indeed,  IT IS A TAKING OF PUBLIC LAND ACCESS, it is a taking of the full use and enjoyment to over 300 million people

    THE WILD OLYMPICS PLAN  is a dishonest scheme; “Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage”

     And basically, call it the ignorance, of American citizens or whatever,

    But basically, the ignorance, of American citizens, is really, really critical for  THE WILD OLYMPICS PLAN, WILDERNESS, WILD AND SCENIC RIVERS to pass.”

    HOW WILD IS THIS LIBERAL NEWS REPORTING?

    —————————————————————

     07.18.16

    Map released in support of Wild Olympics campaign; two outdoor retailers touting Peninsula’s nature, recreation

    Two popular outdoor clothing retailers are encouraging their customers to visit the Olympic Peninsula and support the Wild Olympics campaign.

    REI and Patagonia are promoting the Wild Olympics campaign at REI Seattle and online, encouraging customers to experience the diverse nature and outdoor recreation available on the North Olympic Peninsula.

    THE CAMPAIGN SUPPORTS THE PROPOSED WILD OLYMPICS WILDERNESS AND WILD & SCENIC RIVERS ACT, WHICH WAS REINTRODUCED LAST YEAR BY U.S. SEN. PATTY MURRAY, D-SEATTLE, AND U.S. REP. DEREK KILMER, D-GIG HARBOR.

    The bill would permanently protect more than 126,000 acres of new wilderness areas in Olympic National Forest and 19 Olympic Peninsula rivers and their tributaries as Wild and Scenic Rivers — the first ever on the Peninsula.

    Initiative’s shaping

    The effort comes out of a process involving local communities, businesses and economic leaders of the Olympic Peninsula who helped shape the initiative, organizers said.

    “For those of us that live on the Peninsula, we know about the natural beauty,” said state Rep. Steve THARINGER, A SEQUIM DEMOCRAT who represents the 24th Legislative District. “That’s the advantage of living here.

    “You can choose to walk on the spit or go up in the hills and walk in the Olympics. There’s a lot of folks that don’t know the variety we have here.”

    The North Olympic Timber Action Committee has been looking for a compromise to the legislation for the past several years that would help support the timber industry, said Carol Johnson, executive director.

    NOTAC substantially agrees with the concept of the proposal but wants to remove areas that are routinely logged, she said.

    “What we said is, make some adjustments to the proposal and bring into the plan a timber base that is routinely roaded,” she said.

    “Make that part of the plan so we can have a sustainable harvest level in perpetuity and have our support.”

    Connie Gallant, chair of the Wild Olympics, called the partnership with REI and Patagonia exciting.

    “It is our hope that legislation happens in the near future because it will benefit our economy and environment a great deal,” she said.

    Outdoor recreation groups REI and Patagonia unveiled a new “Destination Wild Olympics” map, highlighting some recreation places in the Wild Olympics proposal.

    To view the map, see http://tinyurl.com/PDN-wildolympicsmap.

    The map highlights some spots on the North Peninsula that locals will know well, including the Dungeness River, Dungeness Spit, Sol Duc River, Sol Duc Falls Trail and local rivers.

    THARINGER SAID one of the goals is to get more people outside the area enjoying the nature that is offered on the Peninsula.

    “It’s a way to highlight the beauty and the wilderness in the park,” he said.

    “When folks are searching on the internet for things to do outside, you’ll never know what will trigger their interest.”

    Port Angeles City Councilwoman SISSI BRUCH SAID she supports the new initiative.

    “The idea of encouraging people who love the outdoors to come to our pristine wilderness areas while supporting their preservation has great synergy,” she said.

    “This, in concert with Port Angeles’ designation as the second-best outdoor town, validates Port Angeles’ status as a world-class outdoor recreation destination and speaks highly of our need to protect this unique and pristine environment.”

    The campaign comes from lawmakers and the outdoor clothing companies’ desires to protect and promote the outdoors, Tharinger said.

    ‘Promoting the outdoors’

    “I served on a GOVERNOR’S TASK FORCE with people from REI, and they are interested in promoting the outdoors,” he said.

    “I think it’s a synergy between PATAGONIA, REI AND THE FOLKS INTERESTED IN GETTING THE LEGISLATION PASSED THROUGH CONGRESS.”

    THARINGER SAID there is concern about the designations regarding logging but that he doesn’t see an impact to the commercial logging industry.

    “Making these designations is not going to impact the timber supply, but it does bolster the tourist industry,” he said.

    Free hard copies of the map will also be available at REI retail outlets in the Puget Sound area.

    The bottom line….

    Basically, the ignorance, of American citizens, is really, really critical for  THE WILD OLYMPICS PLAN, WILDERNESS, WILD AND SCENIC RIVERS to pass.


  • Ties That Bind Farmers and Ranchers

    Ties That Bind Farmers and Ranchers

    Quite regularly, someone seems to say to me “Oh but doesn’t that farm and all those animals really tie you down?”

    Why yes, yes they do.

    They tie me to starting my day when the sun rises and ending it well after the sun sets…but it means I always get to see them both.

    They tie me to the rhythm of the seasons…the might of the winter blizzard, the first spring breeze carrying the scent of rain, the towering glory of a summer thunderhead and the fall of leaves from the poplar trees.

    They tie me to concentrating on the chores that need to be done right now…not the regrets of yesterday nor the worries for tomorrow.

    THIS FARM AND ALL THESE ANIMALS KEEP ME TIED DOWN TO EARTH WHEN THE REST OF THE UNIVERSE TRIES TO FLIP ME UPSIDE DOWN.

    And so I would much rather be tied down here than set adrift in the tumultuous sea I see so many others in. I find this mooring rather to my liking.

    We are American citizens, we are private property owners, we are the stewards of our pristine forest land, the managers and laborers of our family farms (that included public grazing land)  it is our heritage, it is who we are and what we do, it is our way of life, it is our source of employment and income, it provides our shelter, the roof over our heads, food on our tables and heat from our hearth,

    INDEED IT HAS BEEN  THE  LOT OF OUR LIVES FOR MANY GENERATIONS OF AMERICAN FAMILIES.

    So I saw that there is nothing better for a person than to enjoy their work, because that is their lot That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil

    I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live

    Tears for my people

    To my fellow Americans, it is with a heavy heart and great sadness that I pick up my pen once more, not because I want too, but because it is needful.  A great man and redound patriot once rode through the night, at great personal peril, to warn others of the approaching  British forces, his name was PAUL REVERE, I find it necessary to do in my small way, the same now, and warn my fellows of the coming storm.

    Over the last few weeks, men who I consider true patriots, took control of a wildlife refuge in eastern Oregon, THIS WAS TO PROTEST THE ILLEGAL, UNCONSTITUTIONAL LAND GRABS BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THROUGH THE BLM (BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT), they did so in a peaceful manner, without threats or violence, an unmanned facility with doors left unlocked, vehicles with key’s in the ignitions.

    THE BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT has announced the formation of new division of Security, Protection and Intelligence.  The new division is being created months after Ammon Bundy led dozens of armed anti-federal-lands activists in seizing the unoccupied Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon. It’s unclear to what extent the new BLM law enforcement post is connected to the Malheur incident or to the general rise in anti-federal-lands activity in the rural West.

    This new department will operate independently of the already existing BLM Department of Law Enforcement and Protection under Director Salvatore Lauro,

     IT WILL ALSO OPERATE INDEPENDENT OF THE DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIORS (BLM’S MOTHER AGENCY)

     according to James Gallagher Director of Intelligence for the Department of Interior. In fact it is quite unclear as to who will have oversight over this new department or who authorized it’s creation. In calls to BLM public affairs officers they were unaware of the creation of the new division.

    Letter to KBC News by Mark Johnson, 4/12/16

    “Well, if I wanted all the people out of Northern California, what would I do?”
    I’d lock up all the natural resources.  I would remove all the infrastructure… like the Klamath dams.

    I would put the people on printed money heroin…and they would get addicted to transfer payments and free government services.

    After some more time went by… I’d have the Klamath National Forest in a quasi wilderness area, I’d have the loggers gone…Get rid of the pesky diggers..the mining community. I’d go after the agriculture community…attempt to eliminate them.  I’d go up stream…get rid of the 4 dams, remove the water inventory and electrical generation for 70,000 homes.  The warm nutrient rich waters from above the dams would not be cleaned by the dreaded green algae.  The nutrient rich without the dams…the water would be warmer down stream, the O2 level less…and the fish kill cycles greater, and deeper.

    Then I’d go to the Klamath Basin…and slowly, surely…eliminate the federal water projects, the potato farmers, the alfalfa farmers,

    I’d make it all a big wetlands area like before the white man.

    Then as a government… I’d be broke…my govt printed money would have no purchasing power. My debt would be so great that I would have to print money to pay the debt which equals inflation.

    The people I tricked with BIA and O and C transfer payments would have no means of support, no raw materials….and no land for wealth creation.

    Those rural people would have to migrate to the cities, or they would have to die early…. like the Native American does on the reservation system.

    U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time

    It’s not really politics so much as it is Math.

    Take out enough infrastructure…get a welfare govt like the one we have in the US now……. then you can share with Venzuela:

    Someone else’s choice = your sacrifice
    Posted on the www.klamathbasincrisis.org / KBC News Discussion Forum by Finnious T Fogbottom Tue April 12, 2016
    Over the past 25 years over 800 dams of various sizes have been destroyed in our nation alone. That is a bit scary since one of the big differences between first and third world countries is found in the existence or absence of fully functioning dams. The politically correct World Bank had been busily financing the construction of Third World dams by the way, until there arose too much pressure from their otherwise Green allies. Truly when the ethically protected usage, flow and storage of water is harnessed by and for humankind freedom can have a tendency to abound, when combined with free markets that is. With the availability of resources as such there also comes great opportunity for individual advancement in terms of education, employment, wealth, strength, vitality, health and the pursuit of happiness. That also leads directly to the enhancement of the general fitness, financial soundness, global relevance, unity, security and wellbeing of a nation, from the bottom up.

    On the other hand if a certain sort would like to subversively take control of a nation an obvious place to begin would be to gain despotic, destructive and disruptive control over its waters. Because with that also comes authority over many other things that we can’t live without like food, wealth, jobs, electricity etc. It hasn’t gone without notice that over recent decades there have been many an alarming attempt and success in the movement to drain our citizenry and nation of its wealth, rights, freedom, future, confidence, trust of government, unadulterated history and might. Simultaneously a form of top down centralized constituency free governance has been worming its way into the political landscape of our nation and even the world.

    So, what if there really were dedicated and well funded operations in existence which work tirelessly to undermine capitalism, and with that reshape the balance of local, regional, national and global power? What if their preferred and nearly perfected disruptive mechanism is simply the oppressive manipulation of water, species, rights, equality issues, sea and land policy? What if all of this was falling into place through Marxist inspired radical political correctness and environmentalism, empowered by the tragic consensus, collaboration and support of a manipulated populace which has apocalyptically yet proudly exchanged the truth for a lie? Well, that just may be what is currently taking place near and far.

    Not too long before the seemingly treacherous and unsupported agreement to remove four Klamath River dams was signed (with blatant indifference to voter or congressional approval) it was more than a little disquieting to find out that Dan Keppen, (former head of the Klamath Water Users Association) had met with the Obama Whitehouse and United Nations associates in person to discuss water issues, water policy and resolution templates including the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement (KBRA) etc. That time line may be coincidental, still it is important to consider how many of the KBRA collaboration buzz words are found throughout a UN report titled MANAGING WATER UNDER UNCERTAINTY AND RISK. It is quite revealing to search out (control/F) certain words in that document. There are some words and terms with a local parallel which you will quickly recognize like: STAKEHOLDERS, SUSTAINABILITY, UNSUSTAINABLE, COLLABORATE ,WATER UNCERTAINTY, JOBS, GREEN ECONOMY, BIODIVERSITY, ACCOUNTABILITY, TRANSPARENCY, RESTORATION, WATER QUALITY, POLLUTION, STATUS QUO (which is probably code for locals trying to maintain their legal, economic, citizenship and constitutional rights) INEQUALITY, EQUALITY, INDIGENOUS, LOCAL, ORGANIC, ORGANIC AGRICULTURE, BIODIVERSITY, NATURAL, SUSTAINABLE GROWTH, CLIMATE CHANGE, ADAPTIVE MANAGEMENT, MONITORING, FAIRNESS, JUSTICE, DISTRIBUTIONAL JUSTICE, GOVERNANCE (as opposed to representative government) and on and on. We have been thoroughly sound-bite-bitten by those same UN mantra bumper sticker slogans and terms around here since the beginning of the local collaborator’s stakeholder “settlement” process. It all seems to be frighteningly in sync as well with what is referred to as he UN’s Millennium Declaration and Millennium Development Goals.

    I was sad but not astonished as well to see in Keppen’s Herald and News article that he was also happy about the success enjoyed by Klamath Blue Zone programs and projects. Here too rises up the nagging fear that KBZone may be just one more local manifestation of a citizen’s Marxist Manifesto. It does make you wonder for sure when the recent H & N Blue Zone article spewed this: “A community effort …these measures may look like someone coming into town and arbitrarily telling people what they can and can’t do. But he said there comes a time when a community needs to consider how an individual’s decisions impact the entire group… Sometimes, as a society, we have to ask and answer some very hard questions about what is best for all of us…Similarly, he continued, when it comes to health, sometimes we’re going to have to make difficult choices and make individual sacrifices in favor of benefiting a larger population.” It sounds like they would also like to eventually make some UN similar choices for us: choices for our improved healthy happy alternative communal sustainable future. In the end it is all about others answering questions and making choices for us – for the greater good of the greater number of course!

    Sky Lakes Medical Center (for the greater good) is NOW telling us that it is not making Blue Zones like choices for us, yet visitors can no longer buy sugared anything on the hospital premises. It is so nice that we have so many caring people running around close to where we live making “good choices” for we dummies! We dummies who don’t know good from bad, right from wrong, evil from good and on and on. A few more Soviet style consensus councils and we just may be on our way to heaven on earth, and peace and unity without God. Until things literally and predictably go to Hell.

    So, it should go without saying that there is as usual just a whole lot at stake in the upcoming elections. Especially when one considers that no truly conservative politician could ever have anything to do with the Marxist inspired, anti-republic KBRA etc., Blue Zones or the whole mess of tax and spend Citizens for Great Sounding but Eventually Self-Destructive Stuff. At their core one must fully consider the probability that whether by naivety, greed, misdirection, foolishness or malice they share the some of the political leanings as found in the bulk of our nation’s enemies past and present. It is all a receipt for disaster.

    As we discover through inquiry and questions what the candidates are all about and where their roots are fastened, we will then have a good idea of where they are coming from and where they are trying to go, or take us. In the end don’t vote for anyone who will try to get you to agree to sacrifice what you can’t afford to lose to someone who hasn’t earned it, then take you somewhere you don’t want your family, your friends, yourself, community, city, county, state or country, or world to go, let alone become!

    Oh yes, where did that $48,000,000 is misappropriated BOR funds end up? Here’s to a certain sort of upcoming indictment.

    Grazing Service + General Land Office = Bureau of Land Management

    General Land Office-To handle the rapidly growing public land business,
    Congress created the GLO in 1812. The GLO handled all public land issues, including sales, patents and land entries. Surveyors were sent out with tools of the trade to record in their notebooks all mines, salt licks, salt springs, mill sites, water courses and the quality of the lands. This information helped purchasers and homesteaders make informed decisions about the lands offered.

    Grazing Service- With westward expansion came increases in livestock
    grazing and deteriorating rangelands. Between 1870 and 1900, the number
    of beef cows tripled, and the number of sheep quadrupled. The sheer
    numbers of livestock, combined with drought in the early 1930s, set the
    stage for the development of a new government agency. With the passage of the Taylor Grazing Act in 1934, Congress established the Grazing Service to manage public land grazing

    Bureau of Land Management-On July 16, 1946, the GLO and the Grazing Service merged and became the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) within the Department of Interior. Eventually, the era of homesteaders and land sales passed.

    Today, the BLM manages land under the principle of “multiple use” to allow all citizens the opportunity to use and enjoy public lands.

    In addition, the BLM now has the National Landscape Conservation System-whose mission is to conserve, protect and restore nationally significant landscapes, which include many of the great American western landscapes.

    Original land surveys and settlement records, still managed by the BLM, help tell the rich history of the American West.

  • WA State Reform on Wetland Delineation?

    Re: WA State Legislative reform ideas for SMPs and wetlands delineation update?

    Dear Rene’, Hello our/my elected Federal, my elected WA State representative, Clallam County Commissioners,  Mary and Connie,

    I received emails from Rene’ in Eastern WA (full text at the bottom)

    Re: WA State Legislative reform ideas for SMPs and wetlands delineation update?

    A WETLAND IS A WOTUS “Water Of The United States”

    Our Olympia representatives have “NEVER” supported wetlands delineation reform.

    OUR WA State legislators “DID NOT OBJECT” to WOTUS federal jurisdiction over WETLANDS AND WATERS (AND EVEN SOME RELATIVELY DRY LAND)
    Washington State attorney General “DID NOT” file a law suit against WOTUS on behalf of the citizens of WA State.

    ——————————————–

    Wetland delineation is also an element of a “jurisdictional determination. ... A WETLAND IS A WOTUS “water of the United States” and thus regulated under the federal Clean …

    Wetland delineation establishes the existence (location) and physical limits (size) of a wetland for the purposes of federal, state, and local regulations.

    Wetland delineation is also an element of a “jurisdictional determination.” This process identifies which water bodies within a project’s boundaries meet the definition of “waters of the United States.” For more information on this, see the Corps’ of Engineers (Corps) Regulatory Guidance Letter 08-02, Jurisdictional Determinations.

    Remember that the Corps, not applicants or their consultants, determines whether or not a wetland is a “water of the United States” and thus regulated under the federal Clean Water Act (CWA). If the Corps determines that a wetland is not subject to the CWA, the wetland may still be a “water of the state” and subject to regulation by Ecology as well as by local jurisdictions. Ecology regulates wetlands determined by the Corps to be non-jurisdictional due to their isolation from navigable waters. > More on Isolated Wetlands

    Hello Commissioners,

    I would appreciate it if you could forward this email to Steve Parker as well, since I don’t have his email address on hand. As SMPs are starting to be formed in this County, I hope our State can move in this direction, described below, instead. Below are some good ideas I wanted to provide for you to think about, as the State CAPR Director, Glen Morgan has sent this to all the CAPR groups for info.

    We hope to have Glen Morgan and Licensed Hydrogeologist, Steve Neugebauer over here again this spring to help with the SMPs and related issues. If either of you would want to attend, let me know and I will be sure to send you an invitation with time and date.

    In the meantime, we have taken Don’s advice to get the wetland delineation removed from the Potter’s property through licensed hydrogeologist, Steve Neugebauer, and actual “Wetland Specialist”, Rone Brewer who both worked together and provided a complete wetlands determination that was 218 pages in length.

    However, now the Planner is not willing to write the letter that can be recorded with the County that verifies that there is not in fact a wetland on the Potter’s property. While that is the conclusion that you had advised we move toward, the Planner is refusing to cooperate with writing the letter of verification. We would appreciate your help with this issue, as it was your direction that we have been taking and have now completed.

    Apparently Connee Potter has tried a few times to set an appointment with Don, but has not heard back from him yet. So if you could please respond asap, we would like to get this wrapped up.

    Thank You,

    FYI:

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/feb/9/assembly-to-vote-on-water-development-property-rig/

    Assembly approves water development, property rights bills

    By TODD RICHMOND – Associated Press – Tuesday, February 9, 2016

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Shoreline property owners would have more leeway to dredge and build structures on bodies of water under legislation the Wisconsin Assembly advanced Tuesday despite concerns from minority Democrats that the proposals would harm the state’s waters.

    The bill would make sweeping changes to statutes and regulations governing construction in water bodies, with one of the biggest changes involving waters designated as areas of special natural resource interests, or ASNRIs.

    Under current law, such areas include waters of significant scientific value that contain endangered or threatened species, wild rice waters, ecologically significant coastal wetlands along Lakes Michigan and Superior and wild or scenic rivers. Construction permits in such areas require builders to meet a long list of standards.

    The bill would remove the requirement that an ASNRI have significant scientific value and prevent the Department of Natural Resources from designated an ASNRI based on scientific value without legislative approval beginning in 2017.

    The legislation also includes changes that would make dredging and filling wetlands easier.

    The bill would create a general permit authorizing shoreline property owners to dredge 25 cubic yards of material from an inland lake and 100 cubic yards of material from outlying waters annually. The DNR’s review of alternatives to filling wetlands would be limited to options consistent with the scope of the project and maintenance work on roadside ditches that affects wetlands could be done without a permit.

    The measure’s authors, Rep. Adam Jarchow of Balsam Lake and Sen. Frank Lasee of De Pere, contend the measure will cut red tape, clarify regulations and puts more power in property owners’ hands. A host of business associations, including Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce, the state’s largest business group, and the Wisconsin Builders Association, support the bill.

    A number of environmental groups, including Clean Wisconsin, the Clean Lakes Alliance and the state’s Sierra Club chapter, oppose it. Assembly Democrats railed against the bill on the chamber floor, warning the measure gives shoreline property owners permission to damage water bodies and aquatic habitats.

    “You do not go into a body of water with a general permit and start dredging things up and think you’re making things better,” Rep. Chris Danou, D-Trempealeau, said. “This is bad for Wisconsin. This is bad for Wisconsin’s outdoor heritage. It will damage things.”

    Republicans control the chamber, thought, and in the end lawmakers adopted the bill on a 57-39 vote. The bill goes next to the state Senate.

    The Assembly also passed another bill Tuesday sponsored by Jarchow and Lasee that would expand property owners’ rights. The measure prohibit counties from imposing development moratoriums, forbid municipalities from blocking property owners from selling or transferring the title to their land and block counties from regulating repairs on structures legally located in shore land setback areas.

    The bill also would require judges to resolve any question about the meaning of a zoning ordinance in favor of property owners. Undeveloped land zoned for residential, commercial or manufacturing use would be taxed at 50 percent of its value.

    The Assembly passed that bill on a 56-39 vote with almost no debate. It now goes to the Senate as well.

    Implementation of the Clean Water Rule: Definition of “Waters of the United States” (usually referred to as the WOTUS rule) was set to become effective on August 28, 2015. Several lawsuits were filed by agricultural groups, among others, requesting a preliminary injunction, or order, to halt the rule’s implementation until lawsuits could be settled. Late in the afternoon on August 27, a District Court judge in North Dakota issued a preliminary injunction stopping the WOTUS rule from going into effect for thirteen states, including Nebraska.
    FOR ALL OTHER STATES WHO DIDN’T HAVE PRELIMINARY INJUNCTIONS ISSUED, THE RULE TOOK EFFECT AS PLANNED ON AUGUST 28, 2015.

    Why were lawsuits filed against the EPA and Army Corp of Engineers (CORP) following release of the final WOTUS rule? Several lawsuits were filed following publication of the final WOTUS rule in the Federal Register.

    Twenty-seven states, along with industries from petroleum to construction, and agricultural groups such as the American Farm Bureau Federation, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, National Corn Growers Association, and National Pork Producers Council all filed separate lawsuits. These numerous lawsuits have since been consolidated into a single lawsuit that identifies three arguments for vacating the rule.

    The first argument is that the finalized WOTUS rule exceeds the intended purposes of the Clean Water Act and represents an unconstitutional overreach by the federal government on land. Second, the rule-making process is designed to give the public an opportunity to comment on all aspects of a rule. In this case, EPA added items to the final rule that were not in the proposed rule.

    The third, and perhaps most concerning argument, is that the EPA may have inappropriately worked with environmental activists to lobby for the rule and support the agency’s agenda. If true, this represents an abuse of the federal rulemaking process by the EPA.

    Behind My Back | WOTUS “Water Runs Down Hill”

    Posted on September 4, 2015 8:52 am by Pearl Rains Hewett Comment
    WOTUS Water Runs Down Hill

    So, the LAW OF GRAVITY becomes the EPA WOTUS WATER LAW OF THE LAND?

    I DON’T NEED AN APPLE TO FALL ON MY HEAD TO UNDERSTAND THE GRAVITY OF WATERS OF THE UNITED STATES (WOTUS)

    —————–
    USGS WATER SCIENCE SCHOOL ” water returns to the earth from precipitation falling on the land, where “GRAVITY” either takes it into the ground as infiltration or it begins RUNNING DOWNHILL as surface runoff”

    ——————————-
    USGS WATER SCIENCE SCHOOL “NO MATTER WHERE ON EARTH WATER IS, IT TRIES TO FLOW DOWNHILL”

    (SO DO WETLAND WATERS JUST SEEP DOWNHILL?)

    ———————————-
    The Environmental Protection Agency says ANY BODIES OF WATER near a river, or standing water that can affect waterways will (RUN DOWN HILL AND) fall under federal regulation.

    ————————–
    NO MATTER WHERE ON EARTH WATER IS, GRAVITY RUNS WATER DOWN HILL

    —————————–
    Indeed, science has proven that each water basin has its own land area of the water cycle, including its rainfall, its snow melt, recharging the aquifer, surface water, groundwater, rain that is absorbed into the soil RUNS DOWNHILL. Rain that is not absorbed by soil RUNS OFF DOWN THE HILL

    .——————–
    But how does much of the water get back into the oceans to keep the water cycle going?
    Indeed, the U.S. Geological Survey science tells us that 93 to 97 percent of well water used for domestic or irrigation purposes, RUNS DOWN HILL and is returned to the watershed in the proximity of where it was withdrawn.

    And, ALL precipitation, rain and snow melt do the same, GRAVITY TAKES WATER DOWN HILL as infiltration or surface runoff.

    ————————————–
    The EPA says, the new rule applies to tributaries and ANY BODIES OF WATER (that runs downhill) near rivers that (run down hill and ) “COULD” seep into waterways and “AFFECT THE ENVIRONMENT”

    Judge blocks Obama EPA rule as federal power grab over state waters A federal court has granted 13 states a stay on the orders while it examines a lawsuit.

    ——————————-
    THE SUIT IN QUESTION WAS FILED BY 13 STATES (ALASKA, ARIZONA, ARKANSAS, COLORADO, IDAHO, MISSOURI, MONTANA, NEBRASKA, NEVADA, NEW MEXICO, NORTH DAKOTA, SOUTH DAKOTA AND WYOMING),
    which claimed, among other things, that the WOTUS rule is a threat to state sovereignty because it asserts federal jurisdiction over WETLANDS AND WATERS (AND EVEN SOME RELATIVELY DRY LAND)that should be subject to state government control. As a general matter (and as the Supreme Court has recognized) land-use control is generally beyond the scope of federal power. In this case, the district court concluded that the states were likely to succeed on the merits as the EPA had adopted an “exceptionally expansive” view of its own jurisdiction under the CWA. According to the court, the WOTUS rule “allows EPA regulation of waters that do not bear any effect on the ‘chemical physical, and biological integrity’ of any navigable-in-fact water,” and therefore exceeds the limits on federal regulatory authority identified by the Supreme Court in Rapanos.

    The EPA, said it will only honor the injunction in the 13 states that had sued, and will move forward with the rules in the rest of the country.

    —————————————————
    OUR WA State legislators “DID NOT OBJECT” to WOTUS federal jurisdiction over WETLANDS AND WATERS (AND EVEN SOME RELATIVELY DRY LAND)
    Washington State attorney General “DID NOT” file a law suit against WOTUS on behalf of the citizens of WA State.
    A federal court has granted 13 states a stay on the orders while it examines a lawsuit.

    WA STATE IS NOT PART OF THE WOTUS LAWSUIT
    ———————————————————————————-

    WA STATE GOVERNMENT IS BOUND BY THE GRAVITY FED TRICKLE DOWN EFFECT of WOTUS federal jurisdiction over WETLANDS AND WATERS.
    Indeed, WA State Dept. of Ecology MUST FIRST ADOPT AND DESIGNATE THE SHORELANDS AND WETLANDS ASSOCIATED WITH ANY BODIES OF WATER, within 4,000 feet of a navigable water, including wetlands near a river, lake, saltwater, or standing water, that (run down hill) can affect waterways (run down hill and) “COULD” affect the environment, that shall fall under the WOTUS Environmental Protection Agency Clean Water Act and become subject to EPA review and control.

    ——————————-
    So, September 2, 2015 WA STATE DEPT. OF ECOLOGY filed the following rulemaking with the Office of the Code Reviser: Rule preproposal
    (using only online public notification?)

    ADOPTION OF DESIGNATIONS OF SHORELANDS AND WETLANDS ASSOCIATED WITH SHORELINES OF THE STATE (WAC 173-22)

    What’s Up With WOTUS?
    9/3/2015
    Implementation of the Clean Water Rule: Definition of “Waters of the United States” (usually referred to as the WOTUS rule) was set to become effective on August 28, 2015. Several lawsuits were filed by agricultural groups, among others, requesting a preliminary injunction, or order, to halt the rule’s implementation until lawsuits could be settled.

    FOR ALL OTHER STATES WHO DIDN’T HAVE PRELIMINARY INJUNCTIONS ISSUED, THE RULE TOOK EFFECT AS PLANNED ON AUGUST 28, 2015.

    Why were lawsuits filed against the EPA and Army Corp of Engineers (CORP) following release of the final WOTUS rule? Several lawsuits were filed following publication of the final WOTUS rule in the Federal Register.

    Twenty-seven states, along with industries from petroleum to construction, and agricultural groups such as the American Farm Bureau Federation, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, National Corn Growers Association, and National Pork Producers Council all filed separate lawsuits. These numerous lawsuits have since been consolidated into a single lawsuit that identifies three arguments for vacating the rule.

    The first argument is that the finalized WOTUS rule exceeds the intended purposes of the Clean Water Act and represents an unconstitutional overreach by the federal government on land.

    The third, and perhaps most concerning argument, is that the EPA may have inappropriately worked with environmental activists to lobby for the rule and support the agency’s agenda. If true, this represents an abuse of the federal rulemaking process by the EPA.

    What does the temporary injunction mean for Nebraska farmers? It means that, for now, the status quo will be maintained. So current guidance documents and existing regulations for making “jurisdictional determination” will continue to be used by the Corp. New definitions and parameters outlined in the WOTUS rule will not be part of the Corp’s checklist when making these determinations in Nebraska. Jurisdictional determination simply means that the Corp reviews the necessary checklist regarding features of a water body, and possibly conducts an on-site inspection, to make a decision about whether the water body should be under their jurisdiction as “waters of the U.S.”

    The temporary injunction does not halt the rule entirely; it simply postpones implementation of the rule until legal proceedings are completed (which could take months or even years as we saw with the new AFO/CAFO regulations a few years back).

    If the pending lawsuits are not successful, and the WOTUS rule is eventually implemented in Nebraska, it remains to be seen what parts of the rule will remain and which will not. In Nebraska, we’ll cross that bridge when we get there.

    UPDATE: On Friday, the plaintiff states informed the court that the U.S. EPA had announced it would continue to apply the WOTUS rule in states that did not challenge the injunction.

    Late Friday, the district court responded with an order for supplemental briefing on whether the injunction “applies nationally or in a limited geographic area.” Briefs are due on Tuesday, September 1.

    CALIFORNIA IS NOT PART OF THE LAWSUITS
    California Farmers Claim EPA Water Rules Extend To Dirt Fields
    August 31, 2015 6:22 PM
    SAN JOAQUIN COUNTY (CBS13) — Farmers say federal regulators are going too far and are taking away their water and chipping away at their property rights under a new rule.
    The Environmental Protection Agency says any bodies of water near a river, or standing water that can affect waterways will fall under federal regulation.
    Since the 1980s, the EPA has regulated any water you can navigate through, including rivers and large lakes. But the new Clean Water Act Rule will add smaller bodies of water to the government’s oversight.
    Bruce Blodgett with the San Joaquin Farm Bureau says the new rule would include any standing body of water, and dry land that can potentially hold water.
    “This field is a great example,” he said. “This dirt field would now be ‘waters of the U.S.’ under this proposed rule.”
    The bureau says the new rule allows the government to require farmers to get permits to farm from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
    “We have a lot of fields that are fallow, sitting idle this year, because of the drought,” he said. “That will enable the Corps to come after those lands when they try to bring them back into production next year saying, ‘No, those are now waters of the U.S.’”
    Under the new Clean Water Act rule, the bureau claims any private property with a pond and any farm with an irrigation district is now under federal regulation.
    But the EPA says, that’s not true. It says the new rule applies to tributaries and water near rivers that could seep into waterways and affect the environment . The agency says it’s not going after ponds and won’t interfere with farm irrigation. It says ditches that are not constructed in streams and that flow only when it rains are not covered.
    A federal court has granted 13 states a stay on the orders while it examines a lawsuit. California is not part of the lawsuits, but farmers are watching.

    The sinister Department of Interior failed again, earlier this year, in another attempted LAND GRAB, but this time it was in Virginia under a proposed Heritage Area called Crooked Road National Heritage Area 19 COUNTIES IN SOUTHERN VIRGINIA WERE TO BE INCLUDED IN THIS NATIONAL HERITAGE AREA. This sure sounds like the deception that went on with the National Blueway System all over again.

    If this Crooked Road National Heritage Area designation would have taken place, it would effectively put the proposed “National Heritage Area” under the jurisdiction of the National Park Service and Department of the Interior.

    It was a major win for property rights activists Tuesday, March 12th, when Washington County Supervisors voted 5-2 against the impending designation of 19 counties in South West VA Congressional District 9 as the USA’s 50thNational Heritage Area“, which would effectively put the District under the jurisdiction of the National Park Service and Department of the Interior.

    2 hours ago – Siskiyou County residents express worry over wolves ... from Siskiyou County who were concerned about the wolves‘ return to California.January 22, 2016

    by Liz Bowen

    Local News
    January 22, 2016
    YREKA — Some 300 people showed up at a hearing in Yreka on Thursday night to comment on the state’s draft Gray Wolf Conservation Plan.
    Most of those who spoke represented ranching and hunting groups from Siskiyou County who were concerned about the wolves’ return to California.
    “I don’t want a wolf kill on my place,” said Ryan Walker, a Siskiyou County rancher, referring to wolves killing cattle. “I need to know where the wolves are.”
    The conservation plan attempts to manage the growing number of wolves that have showed up in the state during the past year.
    The state Department of Fish and Wildlife plan analyzes where wolves are likely to live in the state, what they will prey on, how they will affect livestock ranchers and humans. The state is also holding conservation plan meetings in Sacramento and Long Beach.
    This past summer, fish and wildlife biologists documented the state’s first pack in more than 80 years. DNA analysis of the wolves’s droppings indicate they came from the Imnaha pack in northeast Oregon.
    Many of the ranchers who spoke Thursday urged the state to put radio collars on the wolves so they can take steps to protect their cattle.
    Patrick Griffin, a wolf consultant for Siskiyou County, said after a calf was killed, ranchers wanted to know where the wolves were so they could prevent another death.
    “After the incident on the east side of the county, it would have been nice to know where the wolves have gone,” Griffin said.
    The DFW’s Eric Loft told the crowd that getting the wolves collared is a high priority. However, state officials need to locate the wolves before they can collar them.
    “We’ve lost track of the Shasta Pack. We don’t know where they are,” said Karen Kovacs, a program manager for the department.
    Fish and wildlife officials said wolves probably killed a calf in Siskiyou County in November. Kovacs urged those in the audience to notify the department when they see a wolf or any evidence of one.
    Mark Baird, a leader in the State of Jefferson movement, said he suspects the wolves are being trucked into the state, and he and others are looking for evidence.
    But Loft denied that and said he, too, would like to see evidence of anyone in the fish and wildlife department trucking in wolves.
    Siskiyou County Sheriff Jon Lopey said he was concerned about wolves harming people, as well as the economic impact wolves will have on ranchers.
    “I’m very, very concerned, and so are my fellow sheriffs, both inside and outside California,” Lopey said.
    Rich Klug, with the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, said he was concerned about how wolves would affect elk herds. He said there are only about 7,000 elk in Northern California. If wolf packs grow too numerous, they could greatly reduce the numbers of elk, which are wolves’ primary source of food, he said.
    About a half-dozen people also spoke in favor of wolves. Karin Vardaman of the California Wolf Center said she was eager to work with ranchers and state officials to prevent cattle deaths.
    “We have no desire to see cattle die,” Vardaman said.
    “I’m very, very concerned, and so are my fellow sheriff’s, both inside and outside California,” Lopey said.

  • The Promised Land Olympic National Park

    The Promised Land Olympic National Park

    Sept. 30, 1937 President Roosevelt came to Port Angeles WA
    A banner hung across the courthouse saying: “Mr. President, we children need your help. Give us our Olympic National Park.”
    President Roosevelt said “Mr. Mayor and my friends of Port Angeles,” “That sign is the appealingest appeal I have ever seen in my travels. I am inclined to think it counts more to have the children want that park than all the rest of us put together.
    “So, you boys and girls, I think you can count on my help in getting that national park, not only because we need it for us old people and you young people, but for a whole lot of young people who are going to come along in the next hundred years of America.”

    The designation of these World Heritage Sites was authorized by the World Heritage Convention, a treaty signed by President Richard Nixon and ratified in 1973. The World Heritage Program is carried out by UNESCO, to which the United States doesn’t even belong. President Ronald Reagan pulled us out of UNESCO because it was totally corrupt.
    The UNESCO Man and the Biosphere Program was created in 1970. The United States joined in 1974 when our State Department signed a memorandum of understanding (not a treaty) to put us in the Biosphere Program and pledge that the United States will adhere to the Biosphere conditions and limitations laid down by UNESCO. Paragraph 44 of the World Heritage Operational Guidelines states that “natural” Heritage Sites (as contrasted to “cultural”) can be interchanged with “core reserves” of the UNESCO Man and the Biosphere Program. These core protected areas are planned to be surrounded by highly regulated buffer zones, all for the sake of “biodiversity.”

    So, the Park Service is choking off the local economy by refusing to maintain certain highways and by buying up any property available. Of course, there will be plenty available as more and more owners are denied the use of their own private property which causes businesses to shut down and the economy to slow.

    Just saying… Just asking?

    (under that freedom of speech thing) FOR CLARIFICATION….

    WAS THERE ANY SPECIFIC SOVEREIGN CITIZEN MOVEMENT?

    IN MARCH 2014, after Cliven Bundy lost a second U.S. District Court case in a 20-year court battle, he sent letters entitled “Range War Emergency Notice and Demand for Protection” to county, state, and federal officials. In his court filings, depositions, and subsequent statements, he said he does not recognize the US Government because he is a citizen of the State of Nevada.[121]
    In media interviews, Bundy used the language of the SOVEREIGN CITIZEN MOVEMENT[122] as a rallying call, beckoning support [122] from members of the Oath Keepers,[122] the White Mountain Militia,[122] the Praetorian Guard,[122] and other like-minded individuals to join his Bundy militia[123][124][125][126] in a fight against the US Government.[122] Armed militants from Nevada, Idaho, Arizona, California, and other areas responded with a show of force[127] by joining the Bundy militia[122][125][128] at a heavily armed militia camp near Bunkerville, Nevada in early April 2014.
    Approximately 1000 militia members and supporters joined the fight.[129] On April 12, 2014, and consistent with THE SOVEREIGN CITIZEN credo and without success, Bundy ordered Sheriff Gillespie to confront the federal agents, disarm them and deliver their arms to them within an hour of his declaration.[12][130]

    HOLD YOUR HORSES: NEVADA STANDOFF REVEALS BIGGER FIGHT OVER FEDERALLY OWNED LAND
    By Valerie Richardson – The Washington Times – Sunday, May 4, 2014
    DENVER — Behind the hoopla surrounding Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s standoff with the Bureau of Land Management is a growing resentment over the federal government’s status as the largest landowner in the West.
    “THIS IS SO MUCH BIGGER THAN ONE RANCHER IN NEVADA,” Utah state Rep. Ken Ivory, who heads the American Lands Council, said in an April 23 online debate sponsored by The Salt Lake Tribune.
    How much land does the federal government own? A 2012 Congressional Research Survey said the federal government owns about 640 million acres, or 28 percent of the nation’s land mass. Roughly 90 percent of that property is in the West.
    Put another way, one out of every two acres in the West is federally owned. In Nevada, the figure is 81.1 percent; in Alaska, 61.8 percent; in Utah, 66.5 percent; in Oregon, 53 percent. In Connecticut and Iowa, the federal government owns 0.3 percent of the land.
    “The federal estate is larger than France, Germany, Poland, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom combined,” said Robert Gordon, a senior adviser for the Heritage Foundation. “It is too big and was never intended to be preserved as one big park, but the left is strangling use of it and with it, rural America.”
    Although Nevada has received most of the national attention since Mr. Bundy’s clash last month with BLM agents, the heaviest push to wrest control of federal lands is coming from Utah. In 2012, Gov. Gary Richard Herbert, a Republican, signed a bill demanding that the federal government relinquish control of more than 20 million acres of federal land within Utah’s borders by 2015.
    The federal government hasn’t shown any inclination to do so, but support for the idea is growing. Last month, Mr. Ivory and Montana state Sen. Jennifer Fielder hosted more than 50 legislators from nine states at a Legislative Summit on the Transfer of Public Lands in Salt Lake City.
    “It’s time the states in the West come of age,” Idaho House Speaker Scott Bedke said in The Salt Lake Tribune. “We’re every bit as capable of managing the lands in our boundaries as the states east of Colorado.”
    There is a reason Utah is leading the drive. In September 1996, President Clinton cordoned off 1.8 million acres of federal land for the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in Utah. Critics decried the move as a federal land grab designed to boost Mr. Clinton’s stock with environmentalists in an election year.
    Those opposed to giving federal land to the states argue that the locals aren’t up to the task of managing that property, either because they lack the sophistication or they are too beholden to private interests.
    At the Salt Lake Tribune debate, former BLM Director Patrick Shea said he opposed the movement to put states in charge of federal land within their borders.
    “I don’t think states are capable of the complexity of managing these lands, and I think people like Rep. Ivory get off on these rhetorical pitches that don’t have a historical basis and they certainly don’t have a scientific basis,” Mr. Shea said.
    State officials argue that the federal agency is herding rural Westerners off the land by tightening restrictions, many of them driven by the Endangered Species Act, as well as lax management.
    At last year’s Western Governors’ Association meeting, Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, a Democrat, linked wildfires to federal land management of the forests. “There’s a real high degree of frustration when it comes to management of our federal forest lands,” he said.
    Many states added to the union during the 1800s were largely federally owned, but the government was actively trying to give land to homesteaders and settlers. By the early 1900s, when Western states were still new to the union, the focus began to shift to conservation of public lands.
    In 1976, Congress touched off the first Sagebrush Rebellion by approving the Federal Land Policy and Management Act, which declared that federal land within state borders would remain under federal control until further notice.
    Advocates on both sides have been arguing over the legalities ever since. Advocates of federal land insist that the issue is settled, but critics call for Congress to treat Western states the same as other states.
    “You don’t change these solemn compacts of statehood as the Supreme Court unanimously said in 2009 by a unilateral policy from Congress,” Mr. Ivory said at the debate.
    On Friday, about two dozen members and supporters of the Bundy family filed with the Clark County sheriff criminal complaints against federal agents. Accusations included assault and threats with a deadly weapon, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
    Mr. Bundy, 68, lost significant public support two weeks ago when he wondered aloud whether black Americans were “better off as slaves” than on public assistance and said black social misery today was “because they never learned how to pick cotton.” He did not accompany his son Ammon Bundy and others in filing the complaints.
    “We expect the sheriff to investigate the crimes,” said Ammon Bundy, who was hit with a stun gun during an April 9 clash with BLM agents at the ranch in Bunkerville, Nev., according to the Las Vegas Review Journal.

    NEVADA DEM CALLS FOR PURGE OF ‘ARMED SEPARATISTS’ FROM BUNDY RANCH
    By Cheryl K. Chumley – The Washington Times – Monday, May 5, 2014
    A congressman who represents the area of Nevada that’s home to Cliven Bundy’s ranch says HIS CONSTITUENTS ARE DEMANDING HE ASK STATE AND LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT TO GET RID OF MILITIA MEMBERS WHO HAVE COME TO STAND BY THE RANCHER’S SIDE IN HIS GRAZING DISPUTE AGAINST THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.
    DEMOCRATIC REP. STEVEN HORSFORD told participants of the Clark County Democratic Convention in Las Vegas this past weekend that residents are worried — and government officials need to act.
    “I am calling on [Gov.] Brian Sandoval, Sen. Dean Heller, the [Clark County] sheriff and any other elected official in Nevada to do their part to get rid of these armed separatists,” he said, the Associated Press reported.
    Mr. Bundy’s dispute over ranching fees ultimately led agents with the Bureau of Land Management to take up arms and encircle his property, cutting off road access to the land. A national uproar ensued, and militia members from outside states arrived on scene to join forces with other local activists and help Mr. Bundy.
    Mr. Horsford characterized such armed resistance against the government as unwarranted and said remaining supporters of Mr. Bundy should now go home.
    He told the delegates at the Las Vegas convention that a fifth-grade girl referred to Mr. Bundy as having a “sense of entitlement” who was skipping out on grazing fees that other ranchers had to pay. Another person referred to Mr. Bundy as a “welfare rancher,” Mr. Horsford said, AP reported.
    Mr. Horsford’s petition may fall on deaf ears, however.
    Sen. Dean, Mr. Heller has previously labeled Mr. Bundy’s supporters as “patriots,” while Mr. Sandoval said it’s not likely that the sheriff would force the activists to leave the area any time soon, AP reported.

    ‘LIBERTY CELEBRATION’ AT BUNDY RANCH MARKS ONE-YEAR SINCE ARMED CONFRONTATION WITH BLM
    Posted 9:53 pm, April 10, 2015
    NEVADA — It’s been one year since Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy made headlines after an armed standoff with the Bureau of Land Management and other federal agents, and, in the end, the government backed off from seizing cattle in connection with the more than $1 million they claim Bundy owes them for grazing fees.
    To commemorate the date this weekend, Bundy and his family are hosting a “Liberty Celebration” at their ranch. Among those invited are cowboys, politicians, the militia, anyone who ‘enjoys freedom’ and the media.
    However, despite the party, the government’s case against Bundy remains open.
    “I SUSPECT WE HAVEN’T SEEN THE FINAL SHOE DROP ON THIS, AND THE NEXT SHOE TO DROP MAY WELL BE SOME SORT OF CRIMINAL PROSECUTION,” said Bob Keiter, a law professor at the University of Utah.
    THE BUNDY SHOWDOWN GENERATED HEADLINES LAST APRIL AND FOUND ITS WAY INTO KEITER’S LECTURES, WHERE THE FOCUS IS ON PUBLIC LANDS DISPUTES.
    “Mr. Bundy asserts that the federal government does not own these lands, and he’s simply wrong,” Keiter said.
    The land in question, according to Keiter, has been under federal control since the 19th century. However, in 1993, there was a move toward more stringent grazing regulations, due to wildlife concerns. That is when Bundy stopped paying, according to the BLM.
    “IT’S NO SURPRISE THAT THERE ARE SOME CONFLICTS,” KEITER SAID.

    “THE SCOPE AND DEPTH OF THIS PARTICULAR CONFRONTATION, THAT INVOLVED FIREARMS AND THE LIKE, SEEMS TO HAVE GONE BEYOND WHAT I CAN RECALL HAPPENING IN THE PAST.”
    But federal agents have remained mum about where their investigation into Bundy stands.
    FOLLOWING THE STANDOFF ON APRIL 12, 2014, THE BLM STATED SAFETY CONCERNS HAD FORCED THEM TO WITHDRAW FROM THE AREA. THEY RELEASED NEARLY 400 CATTLE BELONGING TO BUNDY AND LEFT.
    FOX 13 News reached out to the agency for comment, Friday. Celia Boddington, assistant director for communications, sent the following statement:
    “The Bureau of Land Management remains resolute in addressing issues involved in efforts to gather Mr. Bundy’s cattle last year and we are pursuing the matter through the legal system. Our primary goal remains, as it was a year ago, to resolve this matter safely and according to the rule of the law.”
